We are excited to show you a preview today of the new exhibition, Terrain, by former Juxtapoz cover artist Evan Hecox at Andenken/ Battalion in Amsterdam. Hecox plays with both abstraction and architecture, realism and manipulation in each work, and like we have seen in the past, he creates a timeless and often times non-era-specific body of work. The show runs from October 2—18, 2015.

"I'm always wanting to experiment and try different things, such is the case here. I'm playing around with some purely abstract work that I'm calling "flags" because that's what they're loosely based on. I'm using some of those geometric elements in the other pieces, playing around with the relationship between realism and abstraction and seeing how the two interact. I'm pushing the idea of these forms having a sort of presence, almost like modern architecture or sculpture would have in the real world. I'm also continuing my interest in areas where desert landscapes brush up agains civilization and the desolation and deterioration that exists there along with a barren and empty yet beautiful landscape. These images are made up from photo reference as well as my own imagination. I realize that the flag pieces might be difficult when compared with my other work but I really like them and the look great together as a set and they make a nice contrast to the more photo real images." —Evan Hecox about the work for Terrain
